Diabetic striatopathy is a rare clinico-radiological phenomenon characterized by hemichorea/hemiballismus, hyperglycemia, hyperosmolarity in the absence of ketoacidosis. It is due to lesion in contralateral basal ganglia which is evident as T1 hyperintensity in MRI brain study. Here we are reporting a case of hemichorea /hemiballismus which was associated with hyperglycemia. Our patient improved significantly once blood glucose was controlled adequately. As it carries good prognosis, we are reporting this rare case to illustrate the importance of recognition of this rare syndrome.
